Washington DC Monuments by Moonlight Electric Cart Tour
From $56.00

See Washington, D.C., monuments and landmarks on an evening tour by electric vehicle. Exploring D.C. after dark means seeing the landmarks dramatically lit, and the quiet, open-sided vehicle gives unobstructed views and great photo opportunities. From the Jefferson Memorial to the White House, and Capitol Hill, and a moving series of war memorials, you’ll see some of D.C.’s top sites with historic context from a guide.

What to Expect

Make your way to a central location in Washington, D.C., and then board an open-sided electric cart for an eco-friendly, small-group trip through the heart of the city.

Floodlights bring out the architectural details of each landmark, and you’ll see the Jefferson Memorial, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, Tidal Basin, Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, Washington Monument, and Lincoln Memorial at their very best.

Continue to the National World War I and National World War II memorials, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on your way to the White House, which is notably photogenic after dark.

After a final stop by Capitol Hill, this tour concludes at the original departure point, which is within walking distance to other top D.C. destinations.

This tour was exceptional.

This tour was extremely nice. We got to see the area lit up at night and how things look after dark. Our tour guide was very informative and going around in the electric cart was nice and cozy.

Our driver/guide Sasha was very friendly, informative and entertaining. Motoring about in the small electric car was ideal to cruise from site to site. The city is beautiful at night and the tour took us to all the right places to get a real feel...More

I also went in the warmth so have no idea if they're heated. But they do have plastic that rolls down from the top to provide relief so I would think it wouldn't be like being exposed to the elements.

we did a Thursday but agree that it probably wouldn't matter as late as it is.
